“Enterprise cloud services revenue is set to reach US $256bn by 2023 across the Asia Pacific region, according to new figures released by GlobalData.
An increase from US$107.6bn in 2018 and driven by hybrid cloud services, the figure represents a compound annual growth rate of 19%
GlobalData’s latest report, Cloud Computing in Asia Pacific: Telco Cloud Offers, Best Practices and Market Opportunity, reveals that the market will continue to be led by software as a service (SaaS) offerings. However, growth rates from infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) will exceed the growth from SaaS during the forecast period.”

“Cisco has taken the wraps off of new tools it says will boost on-premises or cloud application performance by helping IT and devops work together to automate and more quickly resolve software problems.
The new tools include a package from Cisco AppDynamics that lets customers track the key components users interact with as they use enterprise applications. Cisco paid $3.7 billion for AppDynamics three years ago for its application-performance monitoring and problem-resolution automation technology. The idea was to develop products and applications that would give customers better end-to-end visibility of the IT infrastructure, including cloud, devices, security, network, compute and applications.”

“Nutanix, an enterprise cloud provider, has announced the retail industry findings of its second Enterprise Cloud Index Report. The report measures retailers’ plans for adopting private, hybrid and public clouds. It found the vast majority of retailers (87.5%) identified hybrid cloud as the ideal IT operating model. It also showed many retailers (72%) are planning to move some public cloud applications back on-premises.
Retailers recognise that seamless customer experience is no longer a “nice-to-have.” It is a critical factor in winning new customers and retaining existing ones. In addition, flexible cloud infrastructure is critical to delivering it. A recent IDC report noted worldwide spending on customer experience technologies will reach $641 billion in 2022. IDC suggests this demonstrates it’s at the forefront of business leaders’ strategy. In line with broader IT industry trends, many retailers also recognise the full, long-term costs of the public cloud.”
